Here you go. These guys said it better than I ever could:

To run an exe file you will need to use wine. I would suggest that you use the commercial version Crossover Office. I've had excellent luck with it installing and running some proprietary medical programs that we use at work.

To mount my NTFS partition, I edited the /etc/fstab file and added this line to the end:

Code:
/dev/hdb1 /mnt/storage ntfs defaults 0 0
Then, you need to run these commands:

Code:
mkdir /mnt/storage
mount -a
You will obviously need to change the /dev/hdb1 to whatever partition your NTFS drive is labeled as, and you can change the /mnt/storage to whatever you want.

ntfs-3g is a program that allows Linux to write to a NTFS partition. I don't have it on my computer, that's why I haven't used it. I'm definitely going to have to look into it, though.
